1. Lecture 5 Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the field that studies the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions and the design of the reactors in which they take place.

2. Lecture 5 – Thursday • Block 1: Mole Balances • Block 2: Rate Laws • Block 3: Stoichiometry • Stoichiometric Table: Flow • Definitions of Concentration: Flow • Gas Phase Volumetric Flow Rate • Calculate the Equilibrium Conversion Xe

3. Review Lecture 2 ReactorMole Balances Summary in terms of conversion, X X Batch t CSTR X W PFR PBR

4. Review Lecture 3 Algorithm How to find Step 1: Rate Law Step 2:Stoichiometry Step 3: Combine to get

5. Review Lecture 3 Reaction Engineering Mole Balance Rate Laws Stoichiometry These topics build upon one another

6. Flow System Stoichiometric Table Where: and Concentration – Flow System

7. Stoichiometry Concentration Flow System: LiquidPhase Flow System: Flow LiquidPhase Liquid Systems etc.

8. Liquid Systems If the rate of reactionwere thenwewouldhave This gives us

9. StoichiometryforGas Phase Flow Systems Combining the compressibility factor equation of state with Z = Z0 Stoichiometry: Weobtain:

10. StoichiometryforGas Phase Flow Systems Since , Using the same method,

11. StoichiometryforGas Phase Flow Systems The total molar flow rate is: Substituting FT gives: Where

12. For Gas Phase Flow Systems Concentration Flow System: Gas Phase Flow System:

13. For Gas Phase Flow Systems If –rA=kCACB This gives us FA0/-rA X

14. For Gas Phase Flow Systems

15. Example: Calculating the equilibrium conversion (Xef) for gas phasereaction in a flow reactor Consider the following elementary reaction where KC=20 dm3/mol and CA0=0.2 mol/dm3. CalculateEquilibriumConversion or both a batch reactor (Xeb) and a flow reactor (Xef).

16. Gas Flow Example (Xef) Rate Law: Solution:
